Transfers after 1NT - 2C - 2D?
We sort of play transfers here, combined with some other stuff. 1NT-2; 2--- 2 = Non-forcing with both majors, could be invitational or weak. 2 = Size ask. Invites game or transfer to clubs (weak or GF). 2NT = GF asking for shape info. 3 = Transfer to diamonds ...
T-Walsh: 1!C-1!S-2!D uncontested
When I played transferclub we used 2 in this sequence as 17-19 NT. That allows for invites by responder, as well as some more space when having slam interest. Also being able to pass 2 if 1 can be weak with diamonds.
Were EW damaged?
Michael: Perhaps, and also likely. It could also be the case though that meta agreements here makes it risky to double, if partner takes it as responsive.
Were EW damaged?
Maybe NS will end up in 4D with the information that EW is entitled to. West may double to show spades, north still thinks 3S shows spades, but will not bid 4S when RHO has made a penalty double. East passes and south may bid 4D instead of 5D.
Ekren in 3rd/4th
Would you mind sharing your methods in first/second and how they differ from third seat? Perhaps you have a CC available?
After opener raises a major suit response
Maybe something like this could work: 2NT = INV with 4M. 3 = GF with 5+M, asks shortness. 3 = Slam try in opener's first suit. 3M = INV. 3NT = Choice of games. After 3: 3 = Low shortness. 3 asks trump length. 3 = No shortness. 3 ...
Mugford Triple Multi 2/3 Diamonds
A variant to get more preemptive hands in the mix (if you're going to have a strong NT range in 2) could be: 2 = "Bad" weak two, or good 3 preempt, or strong NT. 2NT = "Bad" preempt in any suit. 3 = Weak with at least ...
After 2!h double negative to 2!c
I haven't played the immediate negative, but perhaps opener's 2 rebid after the 2 response could be artificial? 2-2; 2 = Strong with a 5+ major. Forcing. 2NT = Natural, not forcing. 3 = Natural, forcing (may stop in 4m). 3 = Natural ...
Slam Try with 4!S Over 1NT Opener
Note: Our Stayman always has four spades if invitational. With an invitational hand and four hearts, we transfer to hearts. With 4M and choice of games, we bid 3 as "puppet". After 1NT-2; 2 we play: 2 = F1 with four spades. May be weak/strong with ...
Natural Club Responses to 1!S?
3 clubs invitational with real suit (not sure its my favourite though). 5 clubs natural "to play" (haven't ever bid it).
